With 21 individual entries in 5 different categories, Brighton Primary School was well represented in this year’s Oliphant Science Awards with 5 students gaining recognition at the presentations held last Friday night.
Run by SASTA, the South Australian Science Teacher’s Association, the Oliphant Science Awards is SA’s largest science competition aimed at students from Foundation through to Year 12.
This year Brighton Primary had representation in all of the age groups, R-2, 3-5 and 6-7, with students submitting entries in the following categories:
- Models and Inventions
- Crystal Investigations
- Computer Programming and Robotics
Brighton Primary School had a student win 1st prize in the Posters category, 3rd prize in the Computer Programming and Robotics category and another 3rd prize in the Models and Inventions category. We also had a student receive a Highly Commended acknowledgement for his work on his Poster entry. This is a huge achievement considering the amount of entries that the competition receives. Congratulations to all the students involved and especially to our prize winners.
A display has been set up of some of the school’s entries into the competition in the foyer of the front office at the school. Please come have a look at the wonderful results the students have created.
The Oliphant Science Awards is an annually run competition that I intend to continue to grow our school’s participation in. If you are interested in finding out more about the competition please come and see me to discuss further.
